The NO N EWS ofth& DAY Old_Timers Batter Young Algona Grey Nine, Sunday, 6 to 5 STEVENSON HAS Here They Come—Racer. Who Will Stake Their Live, at The Kossuth County Fair I St - Joe L™" 5 *' 5 to °- M,2™ rw™ t £™,rK,™™f5't STEVENSON HAS HERO ROLE WITH VITAL 3 BAGGER Crreys Baffled by Swanson; Old Timers Pound Three Pitchers (By Demosthenes) You must be served, they say! And youth was served Sunday, serv- •ed with a 6 to 5 defeat at baseball, by a group of old timers, who again donned their uniforms long enough to show how the game should be played. White hundreds of howling fans looked on and yelled encouragement, the Old Timers rallied after trailing by two runs, and took a 6 to 2 lead, a lead which they never yielded, and had to play some good baseball to keep. Greys Get Lead The Greys garnered two runs in the •second inning, when a bad throw scored one man and put the second In a •scoring position. But the Old Timers .had been through the mill; they played •heads up ball, and with Leo Swanson '•on the mound, using his excellent drop and wide curve to good advantage, the ancients kept ahead. Stevenson, hero of many a game in the past, trotted in from his left field position along in the fourth or fifth inning, and found himself at bat with a couple of runs on base. He pro- •oeded to pole a. hard hit ball far into Tight center field, and while Bruns and Kanouff scampered after it, his two mates crossed home, tying the count, and Stevle himself stopped at third, robbed of a homer when he slipped at second base. It was only the beginning. Stevle was scored and the rally found the Old Guys for runs ahead when It wound up. Greys Used Rabbltfoot Manager MacFadden, and the Greys' •dusky coach, a former Algona Brownie, •whose name' we did not catch, went into a huddle. They shifted the lineup; they resorted to all forms of rabbit-foot strategy, but the Old Tuners Just went right on playing. The Greys couldn't hit, and even KanouH, who has been a consistent sticker, struck out a pair of times. It was a happy day, and although the Greys underwent some unmerclless kidding, they took their defeat in good fashion. Nelion Uses Strategy Manager Leonard Nelson used Swan, .son on the mound the entire game, yinson and Me'rrltt alternated behind, Hhe plate. F. 8/ScanUn and Ralph Miller held down the first sack, and Jim Watts, Louis Lynk and Kill Hemphill all tried second. At third, the Old Timers had several men, and "young Doc Scanlan cavorted at short- .stop. A number of Old Timers got Into the game In the outfield, and there •were several other changes made vshich gave the boys a chance to work the Ttlnks out of their baseball Joints. There is no mourning for the Greys; they are young, and the blow should not be a serious one. They should recover, but henceforth there Is reason to believe that when Old Timers en- ther around 'the cracker boxes and tell of "the days when they played ball" the youngsters will listen with more respect to the prowess of their elders. Mrs. Howard Carey and children will move, together with their household goods to Blue Earth, where they will stay for a time at the parental Carey home. Prom there they will move to Minneapolis where Howard is, at tha present time, employed.
